Nothing is More Powerful Than Falling to Your Knees in Prayer

Praying about this election is one of the most imperative things you can do right now. The election is almost here. Much has been said and much is still to be said. Regardless, there is nothing more vital you can do right now than pray! I want to share a few things the Lord has led me to pray:


No political party or candidate is going to be our savior. Only God will be that. No matter what happens, we must trust him. 

If we elect the worst candidate, if we eat breadcrumbs, if we have no electricity or any other circumstance, God is still there. He will never leave us or forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). We are citizens of heaven first and foremost (Philippians 3:20). No one can take that from us! No matter who we elect, we must put our trust in God. Pray and dedicate your trust to God — always and forever!

For the Newly Elected President: 

Pray that God will guide him and that he will either surround himself or be surrounded by Christian ministers and leaders of good character and influence. 

Pray that he will be convicted and repent of his sins and that his old ways will fall away as God forms his own way in him. 

Pray that he will be a prayerful president and be moved to repentance of any corruption. 

Pray that the American people — particularly Christian voters — will not surrender the office of presidency to the spirit of evil. 

Pray that God’s wonderful, sweet, transforming and redeeming love will fill the president’s life to overflowing.


This might be the most important thing you can pray about until the election is conceded. Voter fraud seems to have already been discovered, just like the 2016 election where dead and ineligible people have registered to vote! 

Pray that God will expose all voter fraud. Pray that poll workers will spot and stop any voter fraud. Pray that the voters will be made aware of any voter fraud around them and that God will guide them to report fraud and suspicious activity to the right persons. 

Pray that the true will of the people– no matter what it is– will ultimately be the outcome. Pray hard.


I encourage you to lay down all your personal preferences and opinions and ask God what he is doing in such a time as this. Then I encourage you, whether it makes sense or not, to cooperate with God’s direction regarding this election. 

Ask God to help you see through his eyes. I encourage you to step out in faith and follow his direction. God’s ways are not our ways and it may not make sense. We are called to listen to his voice, trust him, and step
out in faith!

There are many other things you can pray. However, ultimately these are some of the most important things you can contend for right now, many of which you can continue to pray even after Election Day. 

Pray in the Spirit as often as possible. If you have not yet prayed in the Spirit, I encourage you to ask and seek earnestly to activate your gift as you embrace the Holy Spirit. It is a vital and powerful weapon! 

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but are mighty in God for pulling down strongholds (2 Corinthians 10:3-5). For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this world’s darkness, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms (Ephesians 6:12). 

We have been given the privilege of partnering with God to advance the Holy Spirit throughout the earth. Let the Holy Spirit of God speak through you! In the beginning God spoke . . . and there was light (Genesis 1).

Pray prophetically as well. Never have? You can always begin. Just learn to align your words with God’s own. We have been given all spiritual authority in Christ Jesus (Luke 10:19). We are God’s children; we are co-heirs in Christ Jesus (Rom 8:17). 

We are not beggars! Don’t live in fear! Open your mouth and release that authority, both from your mind and also from the Spirit! Christian, take your rightful place! Step out in faith with your actions and prayers. May our prayers be effective and a pleasing aroma to our Father God and to our Lord Jesus Christ.
